Categorized as Auto Accidents

St Louis, MO (December 27, 2021) – Two people were left with injuries following a motor vehicle accident in the St Louis area on Sunday evening, December 26. At around 7:25 p.m., authorities were called to the site of a crash on Interstate 70.

Reports from authorities show that a 2015 Ford Explorer and a 2015 Dodge Caravan were both stopped on the westbound Interstate 70 exit ramp while waiting for a red light. For unknown reasons, a 2009 Nissan Altima was not able to stop and crashed into the two vehicles near Airflight Drive.

The three vehicles were all left damaged and blocked the roadway.

Two people involved in the crash were injured. EMS transported 33-year-old Sierra Patterson and 43-year-old Jennifer Jaeger to SSM Health DePaul Hospital for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Jennifer Jaeger and Sierra Patterson at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Each year, motor vehicle accidents in Missouri leave over 55,000 people with injuries. The unfortunate truth is that motor vehicle accidents impact more than just the mental and physical health and wellbeing of victims. Not only are accidents overwhelmingly painful, but they can be financially draining as well.

Victims involved in accidents are often forced out of work for several weeks at a time, going without the monetary support they need to pay their bills and take care of their families. To make the struggle even worse, towering medical bills start rolling in immediately.

These collisions often force innocent victims into area hospitals where they have to undergo extensive medical treatment. Many victims require hospitalization and have to spend weeks or even months off work as they go through therapy and transition back into their normal routine. Regrettably, many victims never recover from their injuries and are left permanently disabled and out of work. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of other drivers, it is important that they seek the legal guidance of a St Louis car accident attorney as soon as possible.
